My day just keeps getting better.
Dunhill De-lux Navy Roll in a Savinelli bent brandy.
You prolly never have gotten that lucky, with or without a pipe!
Thank you! Hard to believe she's put up with me that long. She even puts up with my Pirate Kake habit, though I get the "nose wrinkle"; I do please her with the occasional bowl of CBW.
My last bowl for the day: Orlik Golden Slices in my (almost straight grain) Stanwell strawberry. God, I wished it was a cauldron rather than merely a bowl! Anyhow, it'll get me thru the middle of the midnight watch.
Thank you! Can't believe it's been 25 years! I've been married over half my life--a good women to put up with my crap. She even puts up with my smoking Pirate Kake in the house (albiet with an occaisonal nose wrinkle).
Heavens no, not that classy. You're getting up into leather Croc classy right there.
Hello folks. Having another smoke, this time it's Murray's era Nightcap in a Neerup that has seen a lot of Nightcap in its day. Big thanks to WrightwoodJohn for the generous sample. I'm pleased to say that I believe I like the Orlik version a bit better. The Murray's is somehow a bit milder yet a bit rougher around the edges, a strange paradox. The Orlik has this deep, rich, almost oily decadence to it, and I think it edges out the Murray's version for me. Then again, I may be biased, as Orlik Nightcap was my introduction to "good" pipe tobacco (read: fancy, tinned pipe tobacco).
Well back from the ENT 2 states away and it looks like I will come off oral steroids and go on aural steroids, continuing on oral until the date is set, having some Firefly Mix in the original MM Diplomat with Wellington Forever Stem.
Afternoon, fellows. Finally slowed down enough to post a little.
Night Train in a cob. It's still too humid for anything else.
Good afternoon everyone! I'm enjoying some Sutliff Academy (thanks rekamepip) in a MM Legend that I bought at the B&M I came across in Findley Ohio last weekend. I'm waiting for daisy to come home. Then we'll eat. Puff on PSFers!
I'm gonna go back to drinking out of the can, then. Can't have any commie shoes around here.
Hey SouthBound, good to see ya. Glad you are ok, now we need Brit and several others to come back. We have missed you all!
Hi Mike, you are staying away too long, Morse is left alone to defend that soapy crap, poor fellow.
Hiland Cigar's Black Gold Plus in a Pete standard system.
had quite a busy day, there wasn't even time to smoke one tiny bowl. A nice surprise was waiting for me when I came home after this stressful day, my birth year Pete Deluxe arrived and wow it's a beauty. It looks like new from the outside (I only have to clean up the interior), pretty impressive for a pipe from '77 .
Unfortunately not ready to go yet, so for now it's some Dan's Ascanian#2 in another Pete, a '75 System Deluxe 9s.
MentorBV - I see the Strang has worked for you!
Starting the day in the afternoon. Somethings never change. Starting with CH in a cob with the usual industrial strength Kick Ass (tm) coffee. Some things never change.
This is my inargural smoke of Capstan Blue in a mid-1970s black rusticated straight Savinelli Estella 915 KS. I do believe none of you should buy this. Buy something else instead. Forget it exists and be happy with backyard crabgrass! Stay away from it! In other words: Keep yer mitts off!!
Damn, it's good. But don't tell anybody.
I've been liking that coffee a lot recently. Try the 454 Horse Power from the same folks, lives up to it's name.
LEO in the old Peterson 82s has done me good service today. Now Princes Street in a Peterson Canadian. Warmed up quite a bit to 22C(72F)H23%
